A Day in the Program

Since your online learning materials are available 24/7, you can work your online course credits into your day, whether that means an early morning at the kitchen table, a lunch power-learning session or a quiet evening in your home office.

During a skills workshop week (which is every other week), you can plan on spending a few hours after work at our Chandler Campus. In the classroom, you’ll get to work hands-on with faculty and experts who truly understand what you need to know to thrive—and want to see you get there. Among your classmates, you’ll find professionals just like you who are seeking change not only in their careers, but in their industries, in their lives and in the world.
